Last episode ended with the gang hearing a loud scream and rushing to see where it came from. It was from Mai, who had just lost a duel against an eliminator named Panik, forcing to give up all her star chips and is therefore, eliminated from Duelist Kingdom. Upset at the way Panik treated her, Yugi challenges him to a Duel. If he wins, he gets all of Mai's chips back. However, if Panik wins, not only will he get Yugi's chips, Yugi will be burned to death. The duel does not start very well for Yugi, as Panik's Castle of Dark Illusions make it impossible to see any of Panik's cards and with a DEF of 2509, almost none of his monster can destroy it. All of Yugi's first few monsters are destroyed, but he is not intimidated by Panik's tricks and insults. He then starts mocking back at Panik. He shows him his Swords of Revealing Light, then Summons Curse of Dragon in Defense Position and Sets a card. Panik, believing the Set cards is Swords of Revealing Light, Summons Reaper of the Cards in an attempt to destroy the Set card, but it turns out to be a Trap Card, Spellbinding Circle, which traps the Reaper and reduces its ATK by 700. Yugi then Sets two cards. Panik says he is not finished yet. He has a whole bunch of powerful cards that can destroy Yugi and win the Duel.

When this episode first aired in the United States on Kids WB!, it was merged with the following episode, so the Duel took place in just one episode. In 2007, this episode was aired as two parts on 4-Kids TV, like shown on the DVD.
